“Our ability to support global projects and supply chains provides value for customers of our Marine Coatings business,” continues Parker. “Our International brand has been meeting customer needs in this respect for more than 140 years. We’re constantly innovating to keep pace with evolving requirements, with a clear focus on supporting customers in yard efficiency, boosting lifetime performance and reducing both fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions in operation.”
The company’s International brand offers a leading portfolio of coatings that protect and enhance vessel performance when facing different challenges, such as impact and abrasion, chemical resistance and biofouling accumulation. In this area, the product range helps to reduce biofouling build up and mitigate drag over time – which helps to improve fuel efficiency and cut CO2 emissions.
Owners and operators can also benefit from the company’s Intertrac software, which uses big data to support underwater hull scheme selection and predict and maximize lifetime performance, while considering key industry regulations.
